Touch down in the arctic in this once in a lifetime air adventure that transports you from scenic skies to the isolated island in the north.

What to expect?

The Arctic Circle Express Air tour takes you across the Arctic Circle in

Grímsey Island. The scenic flight departs from Akureyri and we land in Grímsey Island around 30 minutes later. We stay over 1 hour in the Island, exploring the wildlife, tasting Icelandic cuisine and crossing the Arctic Circle by foot.

The flight to Grímsey offers beautiful scenery on the way and a fair chance to see whales in their natural habitat en-route, in addition to the spectacular Tröllaskagi Peninsula.

Experience the natural habitat of puffins and one of the last remaining true Icelandic fishing village. After crossing the Arctic Circle you will receive your "Arctic Circle Crossing" badge before feasting on a sample of traditional Icelandic cuisine. It is served by local villagers and timed just before before heading back to Iceland (Akureyri).

Departure times can be flexible and due to the geographical location of the island, being at the arctic circle, the weather situation can change fast. For safety reasons we require good conditions all the way.
